There are lots of reasons people might think they are not a good storyteller. We heard young people say the following:

  • I can’t think of anything to say.
  • I have problems concentrating on my story.
  • Nobody is going to be interested in what I’m saying.
  • I don’t have any good stories to share.

Just because you might feel uncomfortable telling a story doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a go. People are more likely to remember a story than if you just told them a list of facts. This can be a great way to get people to listen to what you’re saying.
